Favorite Superman-Despite only a .500 average for good movies it’s got to be Chris Reeve definitely. The look, the stance, the attitude he was how I always picture Superman.
Favorite Clark Kent-Wait, Supes and Clark don’t go together? Well, not always. Favorite Clark is Dean Cain. To me he reflected the attempt to be down to earth without being too goofy. Granted Clark was the star of the show so unlike other Clarks Dean Cain got more screen time. Still he’s my favorite.
Favorite Lois Lane-Teri Hatcher, I mean it’s really not even close. The look, the attitude, the eventual chemistry with Clark all work.
Favorite Jimmy Olsen-Actually a tough decision here as there were some good Jimmys except for Justin Whalen who made my skin crawl, but to me Jack Larson from the 50’s show embodied how Jimmy was in the comics of his decade better than the others who later played the role.
Favorite Perry White-I’ll probably here it for this, but despite all my problems with the movie Frank Langella still came across to me as how Perry White should be in Superman returns. Jackie Cooper and John Hamilton were solid in the role and Lane Smith was hilarious at times, Langella just had that lookof how I had pictured the character to be like.
Favorite Lex Luthor-I like Gene Hackman, but he played it a bit too “oh, I”m just a mortal coward”. For me it’s definitely John Shea from Lois and Clark and no having hair didn’t effect the portrayal at all. He was a ruthless, cunning, insane Lex that tormented Superman.
